Principal (LPS Oakland R&D Campus) 2019-2020
LPS is seeking the next visionary leader for our Oakland campus. This is an incredible opportunity for an experienced leader to work with a high-performing team of innovative and collaborative educators who are deeply committed to supporting all students in becoming college and career-ready community leaders. He or she will have the support of an Academic Dean, a Dean of Students, a Student Support Coordinator and team of student support specialists, as well as a team of College Counselors and home office administrators.LPS Oakland students are passionate, dedicated, and aspirational young people. They are poets and athletes, scientists and entrepreneurs, Oakland natives and recent newcomers. These students are overcoming some of the biggest challenges in our society: the vast majority will be the first in their families to attend college, and half will be the first to graduate from high school. Almost all qualify for free or reduced lunch. Over 80% of entering 9th graders are behind in Math and Reading. And they are soaring to greatness. In 2018, an astounding 90% of LPS graduates already had college credit, 16% are entering their freshman year in college with sophomore standing, and 38% completed their UC/CSU math requirement. In addition, in 2018 LPS Oakland was named one of U.S. News & World Report’s Best High Schools and is considered a "model of district-charter partnership" by the OUSD Superintendent.
